Arrow® Comprehensive Arterial Catheterization Kits

Making it easier to protect you and your patients.

The CRBSI risk rates for arterial catheters and short-term CVCs have been shown to be comparable, indicating that they should receive the same precautions.1 Arterial catheterization safety, however, isn’t just about protecting patients from infection, but also protecting clinicians from needlestick injury. Arrow® Arterial Catheterization Kits cover both, by combining essential tools and safety features in an all-inclusive kit—with a layout that is intuitive and easy to use.

  • Reduces Waste: Includes only essential components
  • Meets Guidelines: Aids in patient and clinician safety
  • Provides Standardization: Supports efforts to standardize arterial catheter insertion and infection prevention
  • Maintains Aseptic Technique: Prepackaged components make it easier to maintain
